Purple Cabbage Avocado And Apple Salad



  • 8 cups very finely shredded purple cabbage
  • 1 ripe avocado, peeled, pitted, and cut into thin wedges 1 Granny Smith apple (or other tart green apple)
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp coarse ground mustard
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper

Put cabbage, avocado, and apple in large bowl and drizzle with the juice from one lemon. In a separate small bowl, put the remaining ingredients and whisk together briskly until frothy. Spoon salad onto cold salad plates and drizzle mustard dressing over as desired.

Serve immediately. (The lemon juice will help keep the avocados and apples from browning.) Be sure to read the ingredients on the mustard you choose. There are many variations so you need to check that the one you use fits your diet.

This is a very diet friendly recipe for most diets. However, if you are not eating fruit right now, you can eliminate the apple. If you do, try to substitute some thing else for crunch. Nuts may be a good choice, again, depending on your diet.

You can substitute green cabbage, or half green and half purple if you wish.
